The food was very good and reasonable. Very friendly service also. It was in a good location-was right next door from our motel so we didn't have to drive anywhere.

Stopped in for a quick home cooked meal for lunch with friends. The food was served quickly and was very good. Our waitress was friendly and offered her preferences for lunch and deserts. Would like to try breakfast next time!
